Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is a field of Software Engineering. Its focus is on helping software engineers integrate existing applications at a sensible costs, so that they can easily implement and evolve business processes. EAI solutions are distributed in nature, which makes them inherently prone to failures. In this paper, we report on a proposal to address error detection in EAI solutions. The main contribution is that it can deal with both choreographies and orchestrations and that it is independent from the execution model used.
